Venue

The conference will take place in the Congress Centre of the Slovak Academy of Sciences, Smolenice Castle. The castle is located in Small Carpathian Mountain some 50 km from Bratislava, the capital of  Slovak Republic. Smolenice and the nearby villages of Horné and Dolné Orešany are on the northern border of Small Carpathian wine region.  Beautiful countryside around the castle offers several possibilities for walking trips (to Driny Caveor to the archeological site Molpír) or you may visit the castle Červený Kameň (some 15 km from Smolenice).

The scientific meetings take place in a large lecture hall (over 100 seats) equipped with standard presentation equipment (data projector, PC). A terrace and several lounges provide comfortable place for informal meetings and discussions during the days and evenings.
